Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 3 Text 9

yajnarthat karmano 'nyatra
loko 'yam karma-bandhanah
tad-artham karma kaunteya
mukta-sangah samacara

yajna-arthat--done only for the sake of Yajna, or Visnu; karmanah--than work; anyatra--otherwise; lokah--world; ayam--this; karma-bandhanah--bondage by work; tat--of Him; artham--for the sake; karma--work; kaunteya--O son of Kunti; mukta-sangah--liberated from association; samacara--do perfectly.


Work done as a sacrifice for Visnu has to be performed, otherwise work causes bondage in this material world. Therefore, O son of Kunti, perform your prescribed duties for His satisfaction, and in that way you will always remain free from bondage.
